I was an ASCP Certified Medical Technologist working in the Hematology Department of an IDEXX reference lab. I was working there around time of a pet food contamination out of China. The place was crazy busy. Originally my schedule was M-F day shift. Suddenly without notice we were informed that we would be required to do alternating Saturday night shifts. We were told on a Thursday that this would start as of the coming weekend and we were required to accommodate the change. We all were working overtime, they refused to hire new people, and the lab manager who was starting to turn things around was fired for doing it right and implementing change over time, rather than immediately. Moral was terrible, due to the excessive work, with no sympathy from the management, there was a lab in the New England area where the majority of the employees, got up left and quit. After working for 11 months, I wasn't able to stand it anymore and left the company and lab work for good.
Extremely poor management, no concern for employee health or safety, overworked, low moral, etc
